All Star Games: A Rant
Dear NFL Pro Bowl,
Please stop trying. Nobody cares. The players don't even care. Guys are turning down free trips to Hawaii because of how little they care. You can't take a fast-paced, full contact game like football and turn it into a fun exhibition. Do something interesting the week before the super bowl. A skills competition, perhaps. Or just take a week off. But this is getting sad.
Dear NHL All Star Game,
What the hell?!?! What is this Team Lidstom vs. Team Staal crap? Who am I supposed to root for? Was East vs. West not good enough for you? You had to change it to the most ridiculous format possible? Let's face it, hockey: you're having a hard enough time as it is being considering a legitimate sport. I mean, your all-star game is on Versus. Still, I bet the six people watching right now are pretty pissed. Have fun remaining irrelevant.
